Weekly Reads – April 12

I don’t have much to tell you about last week. Except that I am very confused. At least when it comes to the weather. We’re back to cold days, even snowy days, and then (maybe) we also get one day of sun and 20 C degrees every week or two. I just can’t wrap my head around it and I never know how many layers I should wear when going out for a walk. I am eager for spring weather to properly arrive and settle so I can start my running season –  I managed 3 runs the previous week but haven’t put my running shoes on since the cold arrived –  and just enjoy life.

The Weekly Reads

 

How to ace a panel interview. Job interviews can feel intense, even when they are with just one other person, well with a bunch of people it can even feel more daunting. Panel interviews are quite common as they bring together several members of a hiring team. Here are some tips to help you ace your panel interview.

Adding women to the C-Suite changes how companies think. There is recent research exploring why having more women in senior positions is associated with better business outcomes and how that manifests.

Indecisiveness at work. An interesting read on indecisiveness at work to get you thinking if you are experiencing this, and what may be causing it, from decision fatigue to “imposter syndrome” or just people-pleasing tendencies.

Future of work. Four challenges companies need to deal with after the way we work has changed forever. From salaries to health benefits, time zones, and taxes, these are challenges companies need to carefully consider and address.

+ What I’d love to shop. I’ve admired MM LaFleur pieces for a long time. If you have an itch to shop – something I am trying to tame – better have a look at their warehouse sale with items discounted up to 80%. They don’t ship outside of US, but if you are based there, I’d say don’t miss out.

+ What I am watching. We watched “The White Tiger” on Netflix this weekend and we loved it. Very well-written story that explores topics such as class inequality and privilege in India, with an exceptional performance from the lead actor. They got nominated for Oscars for best adapted screenplay and I really hope they win it.

 

Thank you for reading and I hope you are having a great start to the week!
